Maybe it was this morning, but currently it is working.

If it is still not for you, perhaps you should try clearing your temp files and cookies by pressing at the same time CTRL+SHIFT+DEL and make the appropriate choices.

If that don't help, probably an ISP issue between your computer and the RCCanada server.

I was booted off RCC years ago and have no idea why. So I quit looking at it and seldom come on this site to look either. However, when I looked today I noticed that other have been kicked off as well for the same non reason. Interesting

pipercubflyer : same thing

Rccanada doesn't care about their users

when you are too present on their site they take you down for the count for non reason they prefer to have theifs running around their forums than GOOD USERS , PROUD USERs , POWER USERS , and veteran hobby quality user


it's one of the worse sitei have ever been hobby wise!

and all it does it give CANADIAN a bad name cause us members will go there and have a rough time and won't appreciate the stay i can garantee that

long live RC UNIVERSE where all the real hobby people are ! i can't thank you guys enough for taking me under your wing since day one!


been a member since 2006 i had deals among deals there , even before the feedback system was implanted ,

they trash you like there's no limit , the mods there webmaster is among the most slow stupid thing i have ever seen they never do anything about anything they just talk & take time to write back

i will tell all my hobby friend / shops about those stories and ill probably have nearly 100 users out of this site in no time if i want to

yeah, site doesnt pull up for me anymore, Im guessing I got banned for speaking my mind on how I dont like the spamming PM's because I dont pay them money.

Here is what the great site admin sent me. Suprised I was the first, hahaha!

Whats up with RCCanada? It's been down a couple days now. You'd think they could at least email everyone and let them know.

Must have something to do with my ip possibly. I have 3 computers and none of them will load the site.
Not sure if they are blocking my ip and if so, "Why".

Well I'm getting rather irritated. Still can't get connected and am not getting much help from the folks running the site.
How long does it take to check wether your blocking my IP or not.

You could try to use a proxy to see if it works:
open this link http://proxy.arcticgames.net/ and put the website address...

There have been funny goings on with the RCC site since Rick took over. I liked the site before, just not the same.

It's the same forum site to me. The only email spam that I know of, was Rick letting people know about the contest he was running. There has been some tweaking of the website like any other, has not been any slower for me. Sometimes when I sign in to RCU I get a message that the site is down for maintenance, so what's the difference?

There was a bit different vibe before. I don't mean to come off the wrong way, just how I see it.

Ride Rick's butt, boys. Watch him. He's up to no good. I called him out on the re-draw issue and by the sounds of it in the PM he sent, was going to keep the Hobby Hobby stuff that wasn't claimed and forget about it due to no interest. 35 pages on the non contributor thread alone. Come on. 4 out of 6 prizes were not claimed, ie $150 claimed of the $600 available gift cards. He PM'd me a response that gave me the sense he was scamming us somehow. I wasn't upset, just reminded him of the right thing to do. Re-draw. Well I've been banned for expressing my thoughts, in what I thought was a reasonable tone. Fine by me. Kiss me where the sun don't shine.

Dave, it certainly looked suspicious. So I get banned for making sure things are legit. Nice. I would have stood corrected and made things right had I been given a chance rather than just an instantban. My concern was for the community, not because I didn't win. I'ma little old for that, lol. Despite my personal feeling for the moderator, I enjoyed keeping up and contributing on a daily basis.

Wow, I didn't realize this was going on there with in the last several months. Seems like it's not just one incodent as well as the posts in this thread range in date. Don't frequent the site all that much as the boating section is always dead.

I have recently started a site called radiocontrolinfo.com geared towards beginners of the RC boat, plane car world and the more experienced.

I find it very difficult to get new forum members. It really bugs me to hear how a site admin speaks to the people keeping his site going. And how easy it is for him to ban quality members for having an opinion.
